  4. Did you know?  "Code Brown" means tornado. . .LMAO!
    How about standardized colors for the various armbands as well? We've gotten some transfers from other facilities with one color band that to their hospital is limb alert (don't use for bp, IV, etc)...

  6. Scrub tech/first assist
    It's not calling them surgical techs or scrub techs, it's your use of the word only. It implies that they are not your equal. Everyone on the surgical team is important.

  7. Scrub tech/first assist
    Oh, and while I am not nor have I ever been a surgical tech, I do find the use of "only" a scrub tech offensive. They are a valuable member of the surgical team, and the good ones can even teach a...

  8. Scrub tech/first assist
    CNOR is the specialty certification for OR nurses. It doesn't automatically mean one is a first assistant. That requires an RNFA course, which depending on the program may require one to be...

  10. Is This Bullying?
    Nope. I wish, because insurance would have covered anything within the house itself. Sewer pipe right outside the foundation wall plus in two other places- had to replace from house to street.

  12. Is This Bullying?
    Me too! I've never made jello shots but have had a few in the past- must say, the red jello one are not my favorite, but that leaves more for all of you red jello lovers and more green/lemon/whatever...

  13. Is This Bullying?
    It's a good thing I knew what this thread was about when I opened it up today- otherwise, I'd be out looking for a new, non-wine covered computer! Beverage alert needed for the uninitiated? Of...

  14. Where O' Where are the wise ones?
    Me too! Although from the way everyone is talking about it, it probably disappeared in the great abyss. I too have noticed the increase in hostility directed at long-time members/nurses who,...

  15. Do you remember?
    Nooo! Not the card catalogs and hard copy articles that I had to wait for days to come from other schools' libraries! Okay, so I'm not really that old, but do remember those particular aspects. We...

  16. Professional Growth for OR nurses?
    RNFA, NP, service line coordinator, management, education. There are several options out there. I work with a nurse who has been a circulator, a service line coordinator, an educator, and is now the...

  17. germ-zapping robots
    Used in our ORs at the end of the day, in critical care rooms after a patient is transferred, and in isolation rooms. At least in the ORs, we've done some sort of test that does microbe counting...

    Depending on your facility's policy, you may have violated their policies, regardless of if you were on the clock or not. While I have the right to review my own medical records, I must first go to...

  20. Is This Bullying?
    The jello will be right next to her uncovered cup of soda. Then she will try to trick another nurse into having one as well so that she's in on the secret and can't tattle.

  21. I've been a nurse since.....(fill in the blank)
    Many of us in my department still waste time doing crossword puzzles! I've been a nurse since 2005, my first job in healthcare being in the OR where I still work. I remember paper charting that...

  23. I Remember What It Was Like To Be A Terrified Nursing Student.
    I know I'm not the one you directed this question to, but I'll take a stab at it anyway. I work in the OR, which for the vast majority of nurses is a completely foreign environment to anything...

  25. OR Resources For Newbies ?
    Try the AST website or any of their textbooks. Since they are for surgical technologists, they should focus on the scrub role.
